Several months ago I participated in a Trash 2 Treasure challenge on Quarter Connection. This is a quarter scale group. I looked at the things they were sending and basically it looked like so much S*** that I had to work with. Oh well, I like challenges. They day I got my envelope of parts, I was sure it was going to be a mess. I looked at the items for a couple of days and decided I would do an Art Studio with assemblage art on display. For those of you who don't know much about assemblage art - it art where you use found items. You had to find a box and use that and I decided to use a Lipton Tea box. I unglued it and turned it inside out and painted the inside and reassembled.
Here is the list of things that were used.
